Children’s Literary Salon: Ethics in Nonfiction
You know what the kids today are into? Ethics. Specifically, ethics in nonfiction. Could anything be more fun? Actually, no. At least, not the way I play it.
As you may know I’ve started my Children’s Literary Salon series here in Evanston, IL and as luck would have it there are a slew of talented locals about who are actually willing to sacrifice a lovely Saturday afternoon with me. This month I’m pleased as punch to host Candace Fleming (THE FAMILY ROMANOV), Judith Fradin (THE PRICE OF FREEDOM), Barb Rosenstock (THE NOISY PAINTBOX), and Sally M. Walker (WINNIE) for a talk about all the ethical issues surrounding nonfiction for kids these days. But don’t take my word for it. Check out this killer poster Evanston Public Library created for the event:
Bet you wish you could attend. Bet you wish there was some kind of live video feed you could watch of the talk. Well, guess what? There is! Check out the live Google Hangout here on 3/26 at 2:00 CST. Yes, come on over (virtually) to see some seriously fantastic women talk on a subject with far reaching ramifications.
